Your essential pieces
Purchase a few longer T-shirt tops in different colours, short and long-sleeved. These are a great buy and can be paired with a soft knit sweater or two.
Remember, for the growing bosom, high necks will draw attention to your upper body, whereas a V-neck will create an illusion of a flatter bosom.
A soft, knitted, stretch fabric skirt that keeps its shape is a must, and it will grow with you and will last for months.
A-line skirts and empire-style tops work a treat. Tunic tops with leggings are great for your casual days, and long cardigans and blazers can also come in handy, so keep them for sure.
When it comes to jeans and trousers, they will be absolutely fine for the first while. Purchase a waist extender for your growing bump; they are ideal for using on jeans or trousers which have a button and buttonhole-fastening, so there is no need to feel uncomfortable! They are also discreet - you simply insert the elastic through the buttonhole on your skirt or trousers and attach the elastic to the button on your garment. They give you and extra 3-4 inches and are not expensive.
